True Story!

A few years ago I was getting these really insane water bills. I mean HIGH! So I decided to dig some wells in my yard to have water for my landscape. I live alone, so I know it had to be from watering the grass. So I hired a company to come out and dig these wells. The foreman and I walked all around my yard and as we were walking he was putting down flags. I asked what the flags were for. He said, "The flags represent good places to dig for water." I asked, "Why do you have so many flags?" He said, "I'm not sure if any of these places will produce water." I said, "Hold up, you mean if you dig all these spots and don't hit water I still have to pay you?" He said, "Yes, that's how it goes." I said, "Ok, fine." Needless to say, he dug three wells and never hit water. I said, "Just stop."

I got a few more extreme water bills and called him back. He said, "Are you sure?" I said, "Yes, keep drilling until you hit water." The next well he dug he was down 500 feet and still didn't hit any water. He asked if I wanted him to stop. I said, "Go deeper." He dug down another 200 feet and still nothing. I said, "Go deeper." He drilled another 200 feet and he hit rock. I said, "Blast it, cut it, do whatever you have to do but keep digging." After fighting the rock and breaking his drill and getting a new one we got a little deeper. He said, "We are at 1,200 feet, why do you want me to keep going?" I said, "Cause I'm tired of these water bills and I'm going to do something about it." He said, "But this is really deep." I asked him if he had hit water yet. He said "no," so I told him to go deeper. "But you don't understand," he said. "We don't usually drill this deep, this is going to be expensive." I told him that, "Sometimes you have to go deeper to get what you are after, no matter what the cost." He started the machine and went down another four inches and hit a river of water. Just a few inches separated me from getting my breakthrough. That was five years ago and that well has never run dry.

In 2013 I want you to apply that to your life in all ways. Sometimes you will spend time on a thing and it will produce no water. Don't be afraid to move on to another spot. YOU CAN'T HAVE FEAR. I don't care how much time you put into it. If the well is dry MOVE ON! Nothing lives where there is no living water. Be it a relationship, a job, a business, don't be afraid to move to another spot.

Now, on the other hand, if you are digging your well and you are sure that it is not only where you want to be but where God wants you to be, then keep digging in that same spot. Don't stop digging until you hit a river of blessings. Don't stop praying until you live in the change you've been waiting for. Don't stop pushing until you deliver your breakthrough. Yes, it will get difficult. Yes, you may hit rock. Yes, there will be a cost. But when you get to what God is trying to get you to, YOU WILL RECOVER IT ALL!  One of my favorite scriptures says that. "PURSUE AND YOU SHALL RECOVER IT ALL!"

Some people give up when they are only inches away!!

Happy New Year.

DDDDIIGGGGGG! People DIG!!!

    Hello Tyler, let me tell you something. This is what I'm gonna need for u to do: identify which one of all that other p.g.s you are. Because all others will be removed asap or at least removed from coming thru to me. Why? Because I don't want them there any longer. Be it right or be it wrong! Am I serious? Yes, I am. I have my reasons to why I feel this way, too! When it come to God, anything God wanna tell me. He does! Somehow, some way or another! This I know. You know how you would say, another water for one seed; & if your spread it over many seeds, you won't have enough for that one seed? That's for one reason. The other reason is, if I choose to give you my attention. Do I need someone else outside of myself to tell me how to do it? I don't think so! You know over these years what came to mind concerning you TP? Was this: "Who is it that Tyler have that sticks/support/stand with/stand for him? Seem like to me others have somebody or had somebody. And you mean to tell me you been solo (with God of course) meaning alone all this time? Well, when I said, Both: meaning, God & yourself. That's exactly what I meant. And God is a Spirit. You are a human being with a Body, Soul & Spirit. I'm not the type of person who chooses to allow more than one talk to me at a time. So, if u gonna do it, do it! Everybody else gotta go! If u wanna do it, you can do it & I truly believe you're great at it, too! I really feel that way, too! The thing is, Tyler, you are a natural. There is no competition when it comes to you. Not any! Let me show u better than I can tell you then!! And I do hope you receive this the right way, too! What I kept asking you? Tyler, is there something u want for yourself? So, let me ask you this way: "Do u TP, want Sheneith for yourself?" Well, then!! It's all about respect. And I choose not to share myself with everybody! Perhaps, u think they keeping me company? I don't need anyone to keep me company other than yourself. I'm fine with you. That's ENOUGH for me. It's ENOUGH for me, Tyler. Believe me when I tell you. And thanks for your time & thanks for caring enough to listen & hear me. I appreciate you. Kiss! & I choose to fall asleep in your arms each & every night. Not somebody else's. Only yours will do for me!! I hope we have this understanding now. The Man himself is the one who is to speak to his woman. Period! It would really cut down on lots of confusion. If u know what I mean! Problem solved! And forgive please if I had anything to do with the situation being the way it is. However, we live & we learn. How do u show unconditional love to your woman, T? Remember, sometimes we must go deeper to get what we really want. Ok, then. Just be yourself with me. I don't care for anything else. Just be yourself, & that will be ALL RIGHT with me. :-)

    :-) ...LoL... :-) Tyler, how we doing this tonight? Momma in the other room! LoL!!! I'm sleepy, I'm got to get me some good rest. I took no nap today at all. 'I don't work out; I take naps!' Hmmm. LOL! Anyway, Good night Love! And just know u will have to be here the next time. :-) You could still get here before she leaves Tyler. It wouldn't be for her though, it would actually be because I'm ready to see you, spend time with you... Etc... All of the above. Tyler, what are you saying, when u say due to exposure?? My point is this: I have told u over & over & over again. I personally, don't need that! Call me different, all u want to! Sheneith wants & needs Tyler Perry's time, ear, attention, love, respect, care & concern, etc... That's what Sheneith is interested in. What interest me? Y-o-u! LoL... I'm serious, too! You know I'm not playing. Ok, look at it this way: think of it as priority; to prioritize what 1 deems to be of upmost importance. Two ppl must communication, take the time out to communicate. How will you know, if not? I'm really sleepy. Let's go to sleep. Kiss! Good night! I love you, Tyler! LoL! And continue to pray for me when I can't find the words to say myself. Thank you for doing so. Oh, & yes, I have several things I could & will speak with you on & about. I'm just really really sleepy right about night. LoL! I just might be sleep talking to you right now! LOL! Who knows?! I wish u was here though. Better yet, I'm there & you're here, too! How about that? LoL! I know due time. :-) I bet you better not hold any of this stuff against me, Mister! LoL! I'm going to sleep in your arms tonight while listening to you pray over me! That's right! I'm listening. Tyler, do our Spirit sleep? Yes or no.

    What I learned thru it all from the passing of my father. Is this, when you love someone you gotta let them know it so you won't have to live in any regrets. Hoping & wishing you had did this or said this. Or just appreciated them for who they are. Cause when someone is gone then I don't care how much you pray & cry. It is what it is. And I can be honest with myself & others. Everybody you just don't have that kinda connection with. At least, not me. And I don't care to either. It's gonna surprise you when I tell you who I'm ready & would like to meet & talk to though. Yes, it will surprise you. But yes, that the very person I'm speaking of. Yes, yes, yes! Love never fails. Don't be upset or mad neither. It's taken me this long to tell you. Yes, that's the person. Yes! :-)
